if theres one thing I love, its magic. Old school stage magic. If theres another thing I love its animation. If theres a third thing I love its things set in Europe.
So I think I'll love this.


I need a lemonade recipe stat! Its too hot to be without one.

So I really like to read a bunch of body positive blogs. They're good for the brain, and good for the perceptions. I've found that Manolo for the Big Girl is one such blog. The fabulous ladies of Manolo and I do not share a whole lot in common style wise (I cannot stand in heels. They and I shall not be together ever), but they've got wisdom and common sense coming out of their ears. Plus they're funny, and insightful, and, best of all, they know that a Big Girl is mostly additute, so even though I am no longer a size that would be considered big, I feel just as included in the advice and comments as anyone. Body acceptance means accepting it at any size, and they are awesome about it.
So recently one of them posted thisarticle, which I loved, about what style items would be copied if someone else was to do a "costume" of her. Cool idea. I may have to try that.

Catch up.

So the wedding was very nice, and my trip was fun, though not nearly long enough.
Now my car has problems and I've been transfered to a new section at work, with new hours and days off.
So I'll be back to regular posting when things settle down a bit.

Tommorow I voyage to an enchanted town, to stay with my family of friends, to hold flowers, walk, and stand in a line, to smile for my friend who is marching forward into married life.
I'm excited and nostalgic at the same time.

The Wardrobe of Others; Chuck, Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies. Have you seen it? If you havent, you should.
If someone made a tv show just for me this would be it. Its got everything; magic, mystery, true love, baked goods, narration by Jim Dale, and wonderful clothes.
The best of the clothes belong to the leading lady, Chuck (aka Lonely Tourist Charlotte Charles), a young woman who died, and was brought back to life by a touch from her childhood sweetheart and true love, Ned the Piemaker.
The catch? Ned can never touch her again, or she'll die again, for good.
Its absurdly sweet, and wonderful eyecandy.
The Red Dress

This is probably my favorite of her dresses. Only in Pushing Daisies is a red dress incognito. But of course, if you add a hat and some sunglasses....

like so. Voila, mystery, glamour....

and just plain cutness.
Speaking of cuteness.

my favorite of the promo shots, I think. This captures everything you could ever want to know about my favoirite off air show. (boo! why must they cancel everything I like?)
The Green Dress

Off to solve a Halloween Mystery looking adorable. I want this so much it hurts.

Wouldent mind the piemaker either.
The Yellow Dress

Chuck wears a lot of yellow over the course of the show. This makes me happy. This is probably the best of the yellow outfits.

Matching coat! Eee!
The Beehive Dress
Only one picture of this one, but its such a funny dress. The show is chic and has a sense of humor at the same time.

Chuck raises bees, and is undercover here, at a honey plant. Just watch it.
The Coat

Incognito again, and very glam in her pretty coat. Perhaps what is the cutest moment in the whole film happens in this coat.
But you'll just need to see it to find out what it is.

Refrences Dressing Daisies
and others.
